Use one of the main starts (the corner crack start is a classic) move left to the start ledge. On the left side of the start ledge is an awkward monster offwidth chimney/crack. Climb up through the chimney/crack (hint stay outside so you donít get stuffed into the top of the chimney). To an outward sloping ledge below the roof, step up right to a good ledge, step off to the left and climb up and over the roof, or from the ledge you can also climb straight up to the top (this is a less than vertical option to finish on), from either choice continue on to the top or you can walk off to the right side of Pillar #2. This is a classic line of Pillar #2 with a roof of only moderate difficulty.

Descent Options:

Rappel rings and chain located in the center of Pillar #2 on an exposed but secure ledge.

4 out of 5 stars w/ Dennis.

Awkward lead. Reaching deep to place the big cams (4,5,6) was tricky & exiting the chimney difficult.
